Connecticut golfer fires final round 62 to capture Greater Bangor Open

... Thresher caught a break on the fourth hole when he hooked his drive into the deep grass along the left side of the fairway.

He subsequently hit a provisional drive but Steven Burak, who was playing in the group with Thresher and Swift, found Thresher’s original ball to save Thresher from taking a one-shot penalty. Thresher chopped it out nicely to within a foot of the green and wound up two-putting to salvage a par.

“That was a big turning point, too. If nobody had found his ball, he was looking at a double bogey,” said Swift.

“It wasn’t too bad of a lie. I just had to hack it out. I aimed left and hope it landed somewhere,” said Thresher.
